Yesterday I finally tried @strutandcluck in Shoreditch where the brunch menu features dishes such as Jaffa Tel Aviv style breakfast, Shakshuka and Turkey Shawarma. 🐔🍳 I had been meaning to try this restaurant for a long time, but my hectic travel schedule made it difficult to find the time. It was worth the wait! If you love Middle Eastern & Mediterranean flavours and dishes prepared with passion and care, I recommend you try it. From the ‘mazetim’ menu, don’t miss tahini & rose harissa oil, feta & honey, and zhoug!
This week I travelled up north to the gorgeous town of Harrogate to start a 15-month long journey with @taylors and @creatingforgood. That I was chosen - among UK’s best content creators - to take part in this project is still blowing my mind. As I stood in a room full of incredibly talented and highly successful women, I felt humbled. As I listened to @jessonthames and @belleannee talk about the masters of storytelling, self-doubt crept in. How am I going to create something new, different, unique and wonderful to contribute to this Extraordinary Journey? It is a huge challenge and I feel nervous. But I also know that watching other people at work over the next year and a half and learning first-hand from them will be 10 times more helpful than studying a lesson from a book. And so, I am excited too for this one-of-a-kind opportunity. I know I will put my 100% into this journey and I can’t wait to see how it unfolds. Thank you Taylors of Harrogate for hosting us on this wonderful creative trip! #sponsored #CFGExtraordinaryJourney
**GIVEAWAY** The ‘Great Nordic Feast’ is coming to @southbankcentre in London next week with Nordic and UK chefs coming together to showcase the gastronomic delights of the Nordic countries. 👏🏻 I’m giving away 2 tickets for dinner on Friday 20th and 2 tickets for lunch on Sunday 22nd.

The two winners will be chosen at random and notified on Tuesday 17th. #onthetable dried fish, double-smoked lamb and fish stew from @maturogdrykkur in Reykjavik, Iceland. 🇮🇸 #nordicfeast #nordicmatters
Dreaming of the Monkey Club in Marbella...I didn’t have the time to eat there, but that didn’t stop me from taking several photos of the gorgeous interiors! 😉
I received a very special delivery this week: a suitcase containing a passport, a camera, a guide book and a ticket to embark on an Extraordinary Journey with @taylors and @creatingforgood. Through this project, Taylors of Harrogate will contribute money to @womenforwomenuk to support their programs for marginalized women in 8 countries affected by war and conflict. Over the next 15 months, I will learn new skills and be inspired through creative workshops taught by @creatingforgood content creators. Seven Instagrammers from all over UK will join me on this journey (tap the photo to see who they are). We will meet for the first time in Harrogate next week, then again in London in the coming months. And in February 2019, we will travel to Rwanda to meet Taylors’ coffee and tea farmers ☕️ and to see Women for Women’s programs in the field. To say that I am excited about #CFGExtraordinaryJourney, would be an understatement. I am thrilled to be a part of this and proud of what @creatingforgood has achieved this year. I cannot wait to get started! #ad
These soft and fragrant almond macaroons remind me of marzipan biscuits from southern Italy. My dad used to bring home a tray of cookies every week from his work trips to Calabria and at the time I couldn't understand why something so tasty couldn't be found in Rome too. I didn't know much about regional Italian cuisines back then! ☺️ The recipe for these cookies is now on my blog, find the link on profile.
One of my favourite corners @puenteromanoh beach resort in Marbella. 🌺 Impossible not to stop to take a photo, especially if @elensham swirls by in a pretty flowery dress and hat! 😉 #mypuenteromano
Throwback to yesterday, when @millykr and @urbanpixxels joined me for breakfast in my suite @puenteromanoh! Naturally we ordered all the Spanish dishes: pan con tomate, the jamón, and churros con chocolate! 😋 Look how cute is that mini olive oil bottle!? 😍 #mypuenteromano #puentelife365
I couldn't leave Marbella without 'gramming a #strideby of my lovely travel companions, @urbanpixxels @elensham @millykr! 😊 Thanks @puenteromanoh for getting us down to sunny Andalusia for a few days! #mypuenteromano #puentelife365
Another sunny day here in Marbella! ☀️ And I plan to make the most of it, soaking up the sunshine by the Nobu pool @puenteromanoh 💕 Thank you @rassinshen for my stylish eyewear necklace! 😘 #sorrynotsorry #puentelife365
Lunch on the beach @elchiringuitomarbella, one of the new restaurants opened this summer @puenteromanoh! Chilli-Coco Mojitos in hand, tasty fresh food on the table and a sea view, what more can we ask for? 🌿🍸 #mypuenteromano #puentelife365
My view for the next couple of days @puenteromanoh 💙 The weather in Marbella is sunny and in the high 20's...☀️ Perfect destination for a late summer holiday and just 2h away from London by plane. I'm here with my friends @millykr @urbanpixxels @elensham. Follow along our experiences on Stories! #mypuenteromano #puentelife365
Thanks to @nespresso, I can unleash my inner barista at home. Two new limited edition coffees have been especially blended and roasted by Nespresso to be paired with milk. My favourite is Barista Chiaro, a medium-roast espresso that is perfect to make my #dailycortado or a smooth and creamy cappuccino. #ad #NespressoBarista
A corner of Paris in London 🥖 I discovered new pretty streets hidden away in Mayfair when I stayed @thebeaumontldn a couple of nights ago! ❤️
About yesterday morning...waking up to breakfast by @thecolonygrillroom served in my suite @thebeaumontldn. 😍 I'm lucky to stay in nice hotels often, but The Beaumont in Mayfair really blew my mind with their attention to details. From bespoke chocolate bars, soft bathrobes and a jogging map to fantastic in-room dining and turn-down service.

I will share my hotel review on the Avis UK blog soon! @lcdtravel #sp
To celebrate their #18macarons collection, @pierrehermeofficial are offering macaron tastings at their London stores. 💕 Would you be able to guess the flavour of a macaron if you were blind-folded? Find out more in my Stories! 😋
Braud og Co only opened last year in downtown Reykjavik, but it's already become a popular destinations for locals and tourists (with queues outside the door in summer). Everybody loves the cinnamon rolls, but my favourite were the pretzels, the glutenfree bread cakes and the cinnamon croissants muffins! 😋 #InspiredByIceland
Inside @harpareykjavik for an exclusive dinner cooked by @icelandicculinaryteam, which will be followed by the Chef of the Year awards ceremony. 😍 It's my last evening in Iceland and I'm already sad to be leaving this beautiful country tomorrow...
Yesterday we met the couple Einar Pálsson and Kristjana Jónsdóttir, who own Sólbyrgi Farm in West Iceland (@solbyrgi). Their greenhouses use geothermal energy to produce strawberries (and cucumbers, salads, herbs) which is really amazing if you think about the climate and terroir of this island. They welcomed us in their home and offered us a taste of their delicious 🍓 with Skyr (of course!) the traditional Icelandic cheese. Yes, skyr is a cheese (not yoghurt) that's usually filtered and mixed with cream to achieve a smooth consistency. Thank you Promote Iceland @InspiredByIceland for inviting me here to learn about Icelandic gastronomy and culture. #InspiredByIceland
The beautiful colours of autumn in West Iceland 🌿🍃🍂🍁 don't miss my Stories today, I did many different things from visiting the best bakery in Reykjavik to tasting Iceland-grown strawberries to cuddling baby goats in Haafell! #InspiredByIceland
